The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe.
As you know, today is January 18th, 2021. The inauguration of the 46th president of the United States occurs in our country at noon on Wednesday, January 20, 2021.
I am asking you to pray for our country as we experience the next few days. On every occasion that you think about the political and cultural tension that we are presently experiencing…pray.
I am also reminded to ask all of us to remember to pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ who live in other countries. There is so much tension in the world in this present day..so much suffering and pain.
My personal prayer is that God’s ‘will’…will be manifest in my life and the life of my family. That He will give us wisdom to know what to say and do and how to demonstrate His love…how to show and speak peace and love to those that are in our circle of relationships. I pray that this current climate of tension will provide increased opportunity to share the Gospel. I pray that God will show mercy and hold-back those that are evil and seek to harm others and create division. I pray for the weak and helpless and poor who are more-so affected by the acts of those who seek to create confusion, chaos, and disruption. I pray that the Kingdom of God will grow and expand in and through these times of tension and trouble.
I will simply repeat this message and prayer for most of this week. When you see it or read it…pray. God is our constant source of help. He is our supply. On Him, we depend. His will be done.
